In his piece, “Our Universe. Order or Chaos?” T. Nasser has already argued against the claim made by Victor J.

This article will further deal with the same atheistic arguments, and principles. The extract in question is presented below: Continue reading

The prime number ‘One’ can actually be intriguing enough to put the most competent of human minds to the most formidable of challenges. Continue reading

Our universe. Order or chaos?

In 2007 Victor J. Stenger, an Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Hawaii and former particle physics researcher published the book ‘God: The Failed Hypothesis’. Not only did this book prove to be a hit with other scientific atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, but it quickly jumped into the list of New York Times’ bestsellers, proving successful with the public also.

The stated premise of the book is supposedly the rational, scientific (and therefore surely impartial?) analysis of the hypothesis of the existence of a higher power (i.e. God), by examining the information available. The title of the book somewhat gives away the conclusion. Stenger believes that a rational analysis of the universe leaves a person no choice other than atheism.
